Cheesy Franks and Potatoes

I came up with this recipe primarily because my husband loves hot dogs and I needed a break from standard fare using franks. It was an instant hit. Even I enjoy the rich taste.—Shirley Bradley, Wildwood, Florida

    Wow, this is really good. It is creamy and cheesy. I would guess kids would love it.

    Forgot to mention ~ sorry....did not brown hot dogs, but rather cut in chunks, cooked in water til they got hot.

    OMGoodness, this was wonderful!! My husband ate half of it, alone! Made a couple changes to suit us ~ did not cook onion/pepper in oil ~ just added to soup mixture. Heated cheddar soup in micro. just til warm ~ seemed to blend better with half-half. Also added extra potato; did not peel. Definitely will make again, and again. Very, very easy to make ~ highly recommend!! K.

    We're making this for supper ~~ husband's a meat/potato fella, plus anything with cheese is even better, he says. Very easy looking, too.

    My husband loves potatoes almost as much as "hotdogs"! Can't wait to try.

    this is a great dish to make for a crowd because its easy to double. and if you need to use up a bunch of hotdogs after having a grill-out ry fixing this.
